Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL cold war is not over. Yes there is a ceasefire, but the new collective bargaining agreement should only be viewed in the same light as the Treaty of Versailles. Not the end of a war but instead the foundation for the next. The league threw away an entire season and somehow did not even bother to address any of its three major problems: - Bad ownership - Bad markets - Bad leadership This new deal is actually designed to protect this unholy trinity. The top 10 revenue teams will split their profits with the bottom 15. That's not revenue sharing, that's communism. It rewards owners such as Bill Wirtz in Chicago, and justifies expansion into places like Nashville, while punishing fans in cities such as Vancouver.
